I was wondering if anyone knows of any manual tranny besides the renntech six speed that would be able to handle the 430s power.

Would the clk 270 six speed be able to handle it[?]

Doubt it

The MT from the SLK 320 could work since it is the same platform.

The MB tranny is rated to handle a lot more than what it's rated to be. The difference in power (215 vs. 275) isn't much so it should work.

Re: trans..

Nope haven't seen it done. I assume it would be to much work having to put holes in the firewall for the clutch, replacing the tranny, modifying the computer, among other things.
